Tzu Chi Foundation of Canada provides funding for lifesaving equipment

The Tzu Chi Foundation strives to bring the essence of Buddhism into practice by delivering charitable and humanitarian services in British Columbia. Through their volunteers and donations, they support many worthy social causes such as the BC Women’s Newborn ICU (NICU).

Their support of a $28,000 donation has enabled the NICU to purchase a Criticool machine. This life saving equipment actually prevents brain injury and saves lives when newborn babies are deprived of oxygen at birth by cooling the baby's body. This prevents seizures and long term developmental problems. It is truly life saving equipment.

Thank you Tzu Chi Foundation for your generous support and for improving the lives of BC's most vulnerable babies!
